17th February 2017, Orakarn Sayatanan, para founder, has been pre-selected by the Local Jury to go through James Maguire, Global Business Plan Competition 2017.
The McGuire Business Plan Competition is Laureate’s signature entrepreneurship competition, open to all members of the Laureate network, both undergraduate and graduate, and intended to support current students who are pursuing entrepreneurial ventures. Started in 2007, the competition has supported more than 20 student teams working in a variety of fields. The competition has a truly global reach and aims to be a diverse, innovative means of support for students using the skills learned at their institutions to start and sustain unique business ventures.
The contest has two categories: traditional undergraduate and graduate/alumni/working adult. Students from any academic area (i.e. business, hospitality, health sciences, etc.) are eligible to compete. Institutions conducted local competitions in order to help teams refine and shape their business plans. Orakarn Sayatanan, a founder of para, sent the business plan to compete in a role of alumni from Domus Academy.
For this stage, Orakarn Sayatanan has been selected from the first round by the Local Jury to go through the Global Competition in order to consider the projects applicable for the Laureate Global Committee in the next step. A Global Selection Committee comprised of entrepreneurship leaders in the network will lead the pre-screening of applications and selection of the four finalist teams for the two categories of students.
